Former Employee - Food Service in Columbus, OH

Doesn't Recommend

Pros

You get into the zoo for free...that's about it.

Cons

Management is unconcerned about staff health and safety. Staff must stand outside with no shade even when there is a heat advisory. Sun block and umbrellas had to be begged for.
No overtime (ever).
Extremely poor management overall.

Advice to Management

Take better care of your employees. Provide overtime to employees that must stay after their shift has ended to prepare for health inspection the night before it is to take place. Hire managers that are goal oriented and have good organizational skills.

    Pros

    Working in the services sector is a good springboard for zoologists or anyone who wants to work with animals. Good insight into the food industry at the customer exchange point. Excellent as a part-time high school job.

    Inconsistent hours that depends heavily on the number of visitors each day. The job is very boring and repetitive but nonetheless expected for a hourly wage job.

    Keep your anger management under control.
